How to delete your Hotfile account

For now this site gets a 'grey' stamp. It is stated your account can be deleted, but where? Perhaps use the link, select "General question" and request deletion.

Paying members should first unsubscribe from paying (read the FAQ).

About data retention: "We will hold your Personal Information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity. If you cancel your registration and your account is deleted Hotfile will no longer use the Personal Information, but for administration purposes it will stay on our system for a period of one year before being deleted."

Further, many complaints about Hotfile can be found on the web, especially about suspended paid accounts, e.g. http://amplicate.com/hate/hotfile

TIP good to know

Publicly visible text/images often aren't properly deleted even when you succeed in deleting an account. Try editing or deleting them manually before deleting the account itself. If you're unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact Hotfile and ask personally. By the way, deletion requests don't necessarily mean your data will actually be deleted (e.g. due to legal obligations).

TIP Remove third-party logins

If you signed up for Hotfile using a third-party login such as Facebook or Twitter, you probably want to revoke all access from Hotfile. Click the icon below to find out how.
